Anzio Area, 3rd Division Training 5-12-44


Published May 12, 1944


Description at the National Archives: U.S. Army Air Forces Combat Subjects Film #1252: 13th Bomber Command Training Center Guadalcanal Solomon Islands.  However this is mislabeled at the National Archives.

The film clapperboard says it is "Anzio Area, 3rd Div Training 5-12-44" and shows field practice - tank, grenade, infantry practice by soldiers in the 3rd Division. (The 3rd Infantry Division patch is visible when soldiers are crawling through high grass and throwing grenades.) Soldier talks on an SCR-536 handie talkie radio.

Subject: M7
The tracked vehicle in the first two minutes of this video closely resembles a 105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage, also known as the 'M7 Priest' (see www.wwiivehicles.com; type in 'M7 Priest' for numerous photos). One of the units using the M7 was the 2nd Armored Division.
